Effect of Mixed Fat Formula Feeding on Serum Cholesterol Level in Man: II. Further Study Utilizing a Twenty Per Cent Fat Formula
AbstractFormula type feedings, utilizing reduced quantities of safflower oil and safflower-coconut oil mixture, were administered to ten patients with hypercholesteremia. It was observed that similar reduction in levels of cholesterol in the serum can be obtained with this type of regimen as compared to that using a formula which contains twice the amount of fat in the same proportions. A slightly greater reduction of cholesterol in the serum was obtained when a formula containing 20 per cent safflower oil was used.
